Why the crap are you writing this?

So here I am sitting at my local coffee shop writing the obligitory “welcome to my blog” post. What to say? Well….

I guess I should tell you why the crap I am writing this blog. I got really sick and tired of reading all of these parenting blogs that said I had to co-sleepĀ or I had to have my kids on a strict schedule. All of these sites seem to go one way or the other and I got tired of it. It seemed as though there are NO sites that lend themselves somewhere in between. I just wanted a place where mom’s of kiddos could come and write and share ideas and just have an outlet. I need to be able to communicate with people who are in the same position as me. I don’t want to push an agenda. I just want to offer info, reviews and maybe just talk about the antics of my crazy family.

A few things you should know about me and my family. So there is my 18 month-old, Asher. My 6 week-old, Shilo. And last, but not least, my husband, Cody. I breastfeed my daughter, but didn’t my son. I also don’t beat myself up if I have to give her formula for some reason. I cloth diaper my daughter and tried for months with my son, but for some reason, when we break out the cloth, his butt breaks out in a rash regarless of how often we change him or our detergent. We don’t co-sleep. I’m afriad of rolling over on them. I “wear” my youngest but not all the time, nor did I “wear” my son often. I don’t let my kids cry-it-out. They need me. I have my son on a schedule, or at least try to – to a certain extent. I feel like I’ve tried it all. We are a Christian family, but I have an open-mind and welcome everyone. I try not to curse, but I often fail. We are trying to be more “green” but we haven’t done a great job so far. I’m trying. That’s all I can do. I feel that that’s all any of us are doing though. So regardless of whether or not you follow one form of parenting to the “T” or just want to shoot the stuff with some other parents, join me, please.
